About Liz Argo
Liz Argo began her work in renewable energy in 2006 as the Massachusetts regional manager for SolarWrights Inc, a renewable energy design and installation firm with a home office in RI. When SolarWrights became Alteris Renewables, Liz took on the role of Outreach Director and Massachusetts Wind Sales Director. From 2006 through 2010, Argo oversaw the sales and installation of over 750kW of wind, photovoltaic, and solar thermal projects across Cape Cod, the Islands, and the Massachusetts southcoast. In 2009, Liz sold and then managed the installation of a 100kW wind turbine for Nantucket Schools.
As a wind energy advocate, Liz co-founded Clean Power Now in 2003. In 2004 and again in 2005 Liz visited Denmark to capture the film-story of the world’s first two off-shore wind farms. The resulting films, “Change of Course” and “The View and the Vision”, moved the Cape and Islands into an 85% approval rating for the Cape Wind Offshore Wind Farm in 2007.
After four years as a consultant for the Cape & Vineyard Electric Cooperative (CVEC), in 2013 Liz accepted the solo staff role, and for the next 8 years worked to bring CVEC into the prominent position it now holds.
